AN AMERICAN DISCOVERS THE VEDAS
But more so than any particular teacher the Vedantic teaching interested me, particularly the Upanishads, which appeared as the ideal combination of spiritual philosophy and mystical poetry. I felt in them the core teaching that I was looking for in all spiritual teachings.

This led me to the works of Shankaracharya, the great commentator on the Upanishads according to the system of Advaita Vedanta. The Advaitic view of the pure unity of truth and the illusory nature of the world agreed with my experience of life through the political and social turbulence of the late sixties and early seventies. yet I was also drawn towards the earlier Vedas and their mysterious mantras, with which most Vedantic teachers have little concern. I had a sense of things ancient and wanted to know the earliest teachings of humanity. The idea of the ancient rishis and seers appealed to me and I wanted to know who they were.
